CAF reveals names of officiating referee for Nigeria, Algeria semi-final Clash


The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Referees’ Appointment Committee has confirmed the appointment of Bakary Papa Gassama from The Gambia as the centre referee for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-final between Algeria and Nigeria on Sunday at the Cairo International Stadium.
The 40-year-old FIFA badge referee is widely regarded as one of the best referees on the continent and was among the few Africans selected for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
While Gassama has handled several games involving Nigeria’s Super Eagles, one of the recent ones that come to mind is the AFCON qualifiers away to South Africa in Johannesburg.
